Novatempo Workshop NVT-01 “High Growth Entrepreneurial Ventures: Practical Aspects” was designed by experienced technology entrepreneurs to help founders, investors and government officers to more effectively choose those technology areas, product ideas and business models better suited for sustaining high rates of growth, for offering superior results to local early stage capital sources, and for having better possibilities for attracting professional global capital. This workshop provides a well documented review of the distinctive characteristics of a technology startup.

The workshop helps understand why certain technology areas and certain specific models should be preferred by entrepreneurs considering a new venture. It discusses how to draft a plan of execution realistic enough to attract capital from local angel investors, often seasoned entrepreneurs themselves; and yet, ambitious enough to appeal later on to professional global capital. The workshop also reviews high growth business models supported by specific details of the underlying technologies.

The workshop uses cases and methods extracted from the actual experience of small entrepreneurial companies, some of them started by the instructors themselves. The workshops is presented as a sequence of short presentations, followed by a interactive discussion with the participants in which they are encouraged to share their own experiences and pose questions to the group and to the instructors.

Entrepreneurship is at the heart of global commerce and trading processes leading to job creation, wealth accumulation, productivity growth and human condition improvement. Furthermore, the collective wealth of any stable society; supported by a framework of free trade, strong property rights and peace, is inextricable tied to entrepreneurship and innovation.

A rising society must nurture, encourage and develop entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs guide wealth formation processes through the creation of innovative products and services that increase human productivity and regional well-being through three major thrusts of entrepreneurial activity, business, financial and technological;

  • Business entrepreneurs drive innovation in the replication, franchising and reorganization of production and distribution of goods and services.
  • Financial entrepreneurs drive innovation in the risk management processes of the allocation of capital.
  • Technological entrepreneurs drive innovation processes through which our society converts advances in science and technology into disruptive new products and high growth businesses.

Among all entrepreneurs, technology entrepreneurs are particularly sought after since their ventures tend to have a disruptive impact on global trade, wealth accumulation and creation of highly productive jobs.  Technology ventures seek to generate rapidly growing sales and profits from products and services supported by cutting edge technological innovations; this makes the challenges faced by technology entrepreneurs very unique and includes: (1) Very High Risk, (2) Highly Trained Personnel, (3) Rapid Developmental Stages, (4) Early Global Presence, (5) Unique Sources of Capital, (6) Valuable Intellectual Property, (7) Inherent Scaling Models, and (8) Engineered Exit Strategies.

The combination of these unique factors makes technology ventures ideally suited for high rates of value creation; and for this reason, ideally positioned for venture capital attraction and for accelerated accumulation of wealth.

The workshop we present is designed to deliver what every entrepreneur wishes to have been taught by mentors and counselors early in their entrepreneurial ventures; that is, heuristics knowledge derived from experience and from studying 100s of ventures; valuable knowledge that can make a major difference in how an entrepreneur focuses, structures and executes its venture.
